Singapore Regional Business Forum

27 Jul 2015



Spore Regional Business Forum


In her speech at the inaugural Singapore Regional Business Forum, Senior Minister of State for Finance and Transport Mrs Josephine Teo said that Singapore is well-placed to remain a key link connecting China with the region in areas of transport, finance and trade. Singapore’s position at the confluence of major sea and air routes and its role as the second-largest offshore yuan centre outside Greater China give it an active part in the "One Belt, One Road" initiative. At the same time, Mrs Teo pointed out that it will take the collective will of all the countries along both the land and sea routes to bring the idea to reality.
